About this talk

One of the challenges of writing is the limitless possibility of story. By intentionally choosing a structure for our narratives, we set a framework for a satisfying beginning middle and end. Well structured stories are easier to write and more gratifying to read. In this session we will explore examples from contemporary fiction and non-fiction to understand how writers have successfully used various structures to enhance plot. We will discuss POV, timelines, rhythm, and more.
